I have a FileMaker server 18 installation that’s crashing about once a week. When I look at the event log for the time of the crash. I see client 1 not responding, client 2 not responding etc. until all clients are disconnected. All databases show as open in the server console. From a client PC no open files are listed for the host. If I telnet to the server from a workstation on port 5003 a connection can’t be established. Stopping and starting the database server does not help. Restarting the FileMaker service does not restore operation. The server is still communicating with the network. I can open a web page or browse other computers on the network. Restarting the Windows server restores normal FileMaker operation. My environment is as follows:
Windows Server 16 Standard Edition dedicated FileMaker server.
8 GB memory
80 GB RAID disk drive (40 GB free)
Indexing turned off
No third party backup software running
No AV software running
Windows File Sharing turned off for all folders.
Windows Defender Turned off
IPV6 protocol turned off
What we have tried so far:
We replaced the network switch (after the first crash a few weeks ago).
Tested all databases for corruption.
Compacted all databases
Reinstalled FileMaker Server 18
Any insights would be greatly appreciated
Since upgrading to FM14 we've experienced crashing (errors 1000 and 1026 in the error log). I thought perhaps it was to do with version 14 or .net or my scriptmaster plugin.
However it appears to be to do with a filter that I had in place for a portal. It was probably just a coincidence that I had so many records that it was referring to by the time I did the FM14 upgrade.
I can probably do without the portal altogether really, but was just curious as to what the problem might have been.
The filter formula was: Cases Closed::Closed_TimeStamp > (Get(CurrentDate) - 30)
The Cases Closed table has around 22,000 records.
Any ideas what's wrong with this?
